Description

2006 Topps is a 659-card set was issued over two series. Series One was released in February, 2006 while Series Two was issued four months later.

Alex Gordon "Rookie Card" controversy

Card #297 Alex Gordon was pulled early in production because Gordon did not have any major league experience which violated the new Rookie Card rules instituted during the off-season by the MLBPA. Topps estimates around 100 Gordon cards made it into production while Beckett estimates 200 to 500. Beckett also estimates that 2500 to 5000 cut out versions made their way into packs. The "Cut Out" variations of the Gordon card are where Topps literally cut Gordon's image out of the card, leaving only an empty cardboard frame.

In addition, cards #297 and #312 (Pete Mackanin and John Koronka) cards were changed for the factory sets, and a card of Alay Soler cards was randomly inserted into Series Two packs unannounced.

Short Prints

Alay Soler was a Cuban defector who pitched eight games for the Mets in 2006. His rather uneventful career is best remembered for a unannounced "rookie" card that was randomly inserted into Series Two packs. Production figures were never fully released, however it is estimated that 750 copies were made.

The Soler card is the first of a number of short print or super short print cards that Topps included in future Topps flagship products.

RC1 Alay Soler


Parallels

All 659 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • Gold (serial-numbered to 2006 copies)
  • Black (serial-numbered to 55)
  • Platinum (one-of-one)
  • Printing Plates (set of four for each)

Parallels do NOT exist for the Alex Gordon and Alay Soler cards or for the John Koronka ad Pete Mackanin replacement cards.

Inserts

2K All-Stars

This 11-card set was inserted into Series One packs to promote the MLB 2K6 video game. Cards 1-6 were packaged with the game while cards 7-11 were randomly inserted into packs.

Andruw Jones signed 100 copies of his card for random inserted into MLB 2K6 games.

Barry Bonds Chase to 715

This massive 1620-card set features ten cards (one for each inning plus a tenth "extra innings" card) for each game in the 2006 San Francisco Giants season. Each card is a one-of-one.

If Barry Bonds hit his career 715th home run in the exact inning listed, the winning card could be redeemed for a prize.

Game #50-4th Inning was the winning card.

Home Run Derby Contest

This set features 50 players whose card could, provided they won the 2006 All-Star Game's Home Run Derby, be redeemed for a special Blue parallel of the entire base set (660 cards). Each person with the winning card (Ryan Howard) received 1 of 10 sets. According to Topps, only one lucky collector submitted the Ryan Howard card (serial number 5/10), so only one set (7/10) was mailed out. What happened to the other nine sets remains a hobby mystery.

Each card is serial-numbered to only ten copies.

Mickey Mantle Collection

In 2006, Topps signed a ten-year agreement with the estate of Mickey Mantle. Beginning in 2006, card #7 in the Topps base set (which had been previously "retired") would feature Mantle. To backfill the years between his death and the present day, Topps randomly inserted into Series One ten Mantle cards done in the style of the Topps flagship from 1996-2005.

Rookie of the Week

This 25-card set was distributed exclusively through Topps Home Team Advantage dealer network. A new card was available each week, and to acquire that week's card collectors had to purchase a pack of Topps cards from their local HTA dealer.

Each card is a reprint of the player's Topps rookie card, but with a different photo then the original.
